Summary: It worked well for three days. The drive was recognized and formatted by the cable box DVR. After three days I could not access anything recorded. I could not reset the cable box with the external drive attached. I had to return the unit.
Summary: I purchased this ExHD (1TB) soley for the use of the eSATA connection to my computer. I have a factory installed eSATA port on my computer and this HD is not recognized. I tried everything the troubleshooting offered in forwards and in reverse... nothing worked. I'm stuck using the USB 2.0 port making this a more expensive typical external HD. I even downloaded software from the company, no results.
Summary: I bought this drive specifically for the esata port because I wanted to install games on it, and it seems quite fast and high quality besides the broken switch. After just a few weeks of using the drive and I would estimate about 10 times turning it on and off the power switch stopped working except when the drive was upside down, and soon after it would only turn on when I held the switch down.
Summary: Hi bought this with built in encryption which starts giving you issues after a while, all of sudden drive will not pick up by Windows or any other OS and cant be accessed. two replacement later and same issue with everyone. my advice: ditch the encrypted drive and do a normal usb3 drive as their build quality and dimensions are fantastic.
